Why did I write it?
This book is a gift to not just the prenatal and perinatal psychology community; it is a gift to society as a whole. As Hayton masterfully illustrates, it is amazing how broadly the subject matter of womb twin loss and survival affects millions of people across the globe, and yet it is so little in conscious awareness. Her comprehensive work changes that and serves to enlighten us all on what it is to be a wombtwin survivor. She has painstakingly articulated the complex processes of the development of multiples in the womb, taking the reader through the many ways twins and multiples are connected physically, emotionally, and psychologically. Hayton covers a broad spectrum of clinical research and includes fascinating firsthand accounts of those who have suffered the loss of a sibling perinatally. Hayton expertly documents the identifying psychological and physiological characteristics of womb twin loss and provides excellent direction for healing the many painful emotions and life shaping despair these survivors can share. This wonderful accomplishment by Hayton serves as a primer for those who wish to learn more about the power of the very early experiences of multiples in the womb. It is also a treasure to those who have survived such a painful loss and will help ease their loneliness and offer hope and guidance for positive and healing change. Don’t miss adding this book to your prenatal and perinatal literature. It is an essential read! – [Patricia Lucas, APPAH newsletter]
